Abstract:
A field study was carried out for two consecutive years i.e. kharif 2018 and kharif 2019 at the Post graduate institute farm of Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri, to evaluate some integrated pest management modules against shoot and fruit borer (Leucinodes orbonalis Guenee) in brinjal. The four modules included 2 bio-intensive integrated pest management modules, one farmers practice and untreated control. Module-II (Installation of pheromone trap @ 5 traps/acre for monitoring the population of Leucinodes orbonalis + Six release of egg parasitoid, Trichogramma chilonis @ 1.0 Lakh/ha against Leucinodes orbonalis, initiated with flowering and subsequent at 10 days interval + four sprays of NSKE (5%) at 50, 60, 80 and 90 DAT + one spray of Bt @ 1500 ml/ha at 70 days after transplanting + mechanical clipping of infested shoot at weekly interval+ one spray of chlorantraniliprole 18.5 SC @ 0.3 ml/lit at 100 DAT) had least shoot damage and fruit damage. The highest average fruit yield (302.06 q/ha) was found in Module-II with benefit cost ratio (1:7).
